Milano, James V. [COL/USA (Ret.)], and Patrick Brogan. Soldiers, Spies, and the Rat Line: America's Undeclared War Against the Soviets. Washington, DC: Brassey's, 1996.

Ruffner, "CIC Records...," CSI Bulletin 11 (Summer 2000), notes that "[a]s the chief of the Operations Branch of the G-2, or Intelligence Section, of the headquarters of the United States Forces in Austria, Milano worked closely with the officers and special agents of the 430th CIC Detachment" from 1945 until 1950. This work "fleshes out many of the vignettes in CIC's official history."

According to Friedman, Parameters 27 (Summer 1997), this book "describes how U.S. military intelligence personnel ... became at first indirectly and then directly involved in providing cover and escape mechanisms for some former adversaries. It is a cautionary tale and one that should be kept in mind by future generations of military intelligence officers caught up in changing political situations."

Kruh, Cryptologia 20.3, comments that the author "recounts the exciting, sometimes rowdy, and, at times, amusing adventures of some of the first espionage efforts of the postwar era.... It is a riveting true story of the real world of intelligence during a precarious period of the Cold War."

To Cutler, Proceedings 122.4 (Apr. 1996), Milano's "secret operations designed to thwart the Soviet occupation forces in Austria" were "[h]ighly successful in some ways," but introduced "unforeseen complications in others.... This so-called 'rat line' unwittingly served as the means of escape for the 'Butcher of Lyons,' Klaus Barbie. Laced with humor and insightful revelations, this memoir serves as an unusual account of heretofore closely guarded methods and secrets."

Milazzo, Matteo J. The Chetnik Movement and the Yugoslav Resistance. Baltimore, MD: Johns Hopkins, 1975.

Woolley, History: Reviews of New Books 3.9 (1975), finds that "[r]ather than offer new interpretations," the author "extends what we already knew.... Unfortunately the general appeal of the book will be somewhat limited by its specialized nature. A considerable knowledge of Yugoslavia's history and wartime experience is assumed."


Miles, Anne Daugherty. The Creation of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency: Congress' Role as Overseer. Occasional Paper No. 9. Washington, DC: Joint Military Intelligence College, 2001.

Wiant, Studies 46.1, calls this monograph on the creation of NIMA in 1996 "thoughtful and timely.... Miles is primarily concerned with congressional processes and the play between authorization and appropriation committees."


Miles, Jonathan. The Dangerous Otto Katz: The Many Lives of a Soviet Spy. London & New York: Bloomsbury, 2010.

Goulden, Washington Times, 8 Feb. 2011, and Intelligencer 18.2 (Winter-Spring 2011), calls this "biography at its readable best: characters who were rogues and charlatans but unfailingly interesting." As a figure on the post-World War I European arts scene, Katz joined forces with Willi Munzenberg to whom the Soviets had "essentially turned over their Western propaganda campaign.... As a Comintern agent, Katz flitted from country to country, using a host of aliases, starting scores of communist-oriented journals, publishing books and providing tainted 'news' to publications and wire services.... But it was in 1930s Hollywood that Katz made his major contribution to world communism." Using the name of Rudolph (or Rudolf) Breda and billing himself as an "anti-fascist freedom fighter," Katz/Breda "exerted a political influence" on a number of Hollywood luminaries. Back in his native Czechoslovakis following World War II, "Katz was among the 11 men hanged at the conclusion" of the show trial of the so-called "Slansky group."

For Peake, Studies 55.1 (Mar. 2011), the author "fills in the colorful details of this extraordinary agent of influence who figured prominently in the promotion of communism in much of the Western world." The book "is a stirring tale of dedicated service that reveals the realities of Soviet espionage."


Miles, Milton. A Different Kind of War: The Little Known Story of the Combined Guerrilla Forces Created in China by the U.S. Navy and the Chinese during World War II. Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1967.

Constantinides: Miles tells the story of the Sino-American Cooperative Organization (SACO), which he co-headed. SACO was established to create joint U.S.-Nationalist Chinese intelligence and guerrilla warfare capabilities against the Japanese. Miles had significant disagreements with other U.S. activities operating in China. "What Miles had to say is partisan, and his conclusions in many instances are controversial."

Millar, George, The Bruneval Raid: Flashpoint of the Radar War. London: Bodley Head, 1974. Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1974.

Constantinides notes that the focus here is the 1942 British raid to capture a German radar. However, "Millar, who served as an agent in France,... is surprisingly good on the outlines of the radar war."

Millar, George Reid.

1. Horned Pigeon. New York: Doubleday, 1946. New York: Time-Life, 1989. [pb] London: Orion, 2003.

From publisher: This is a "classic World War II prisoner-of-war escape story" that "conveys the terrifying experience of life on the run in wartime Europe.... Captured in the Libyan desert ... and held in various prison camps in Italy, Millar was transferred to Germany after several unsuccessful escape attempts. Escaping once more,... Millar set out to reach London.... Speaking fluent French ... he was able to pass himself off as a French labourer on his hazardous journey.... [W]hen he returned to London,... [he] joined the Special Forces [SOE] ... and ... began training for operations behind enemy lines in France -- ... that is the subject of ... Maquis."

2. Maquis. London: Heinemann, 1945. Maquis: The Secret War. New York: Time-Life, 1990. [pb] Maquis: The French Resistance at War. London: Orion, 2003. London: Cassell, 2003. [pb]

From publisher: The author was parachuted into France by SOE in June 1944. "In constant danger, and often with little equipment," he "led his group of the Maquis on a series of ... adventures which challenge the imagination.... Millar's story is one of resource, endurance and hairbreadth escapes, of astonishing success and only occasional tragedy."

"Until this weekend I did not know that Dr [Robin] Pearson spied on me. The codename Armin leapt out at me from my Stasi file, a document of 250 pages compiled by the communist secret police during the early 1980s when I was the only British correspondent in East Berlin."

Deaile, "Anyone seeking to do research into the Korean War or interested in the state of the current scholarship on the conflict will find Millett's work loaded with a wealth of information. In addition to the bibliographical references, The Korean War lists numerous Web sites and sources of information on the Internet. This work would be an incredible addition to any personal or professional library."
